It is important for young children whose parents are getting divorced to know that their parents still care about them. This is s stressful time for the whole family and it is easy to make the fight your main focus.
A social worker in California has offered advice on how to keep the ties between parents and children strong even during this confusing time.
A few tips on the subject include, not talking bad about one parent to kids and keeping the children out of the fight as much as possible. Another piece of advise is to focus on the children no matter how high the stress of the divorce is.
Also, if parents can develop their own parenting plan before going to court this will allow them to decide the best situation for the children.
